In this letter, we investigate the blind channel estimation in MIMO-OFDM systems based on the second-order statistics of the channel outputs only. We exploit the cyclostationarity induced by OFDM with cyclic prefix, establish the sufficient identifiability conditions, and develop a subspace algorithm. Finally, we demonstrate the validity of the algorithm by computer simulations.
